My husband Jeff, son Paul and I are leaving early Saturday on vacation to Colorado. I'll be gone for several days. My sister will be at our home with my dad, little dogie, and fluffly cat. I'll not have Internet, so I'll not be posting. But, I have a post scheduled for October 26--it is a review for The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher, book is courtesy of LitFuse and Revell-Baker Publishing.
